Overview

The overlay, which is used over the map of Nevada, 1881 (maps 3, 4, 5 and 6) has been reproduced from a modern map. The purpose is to show the changes in the state over a period of 100 years. Place names may appear in 1881, which are absent on the current map. Some of the locations may have been early stage stations, mining camps, ranches or early town sites later abandoned.

The different locations noted in boundaries, landmarks and place names are evident. Being aware of the difficulties encountered by the early surveyors, due to lack of knowledge and primitive equipment, we understand the errors.

As shown in the photos;

  • Locate a site on the map of 1881
  • Place the overlay on the map
  • Place a pointer on the site - Insert a white card between the map and overlay and the site will be located on the modern road system

Accuracy and scale of the maps are not guaranteed, however, one may locate general area of interest with this technique.

    Wear your bifocals!

    I love old maps, so these are a valuable addition to my collection, but being reproductions of probably faded originals, the print quality is less-than-great. Not only are the maps relativly small, most town names and land features are in tiny print and the overlays are difficult to make out. These maps would be a great visual tool for anyone teaching Nevada history, but if you're a desert explorer hoping to find old mines and ghost towns using these maps, you will probably find them lacking the detail and accuracy needed to make them truly useful.
